Dainty Meadows Travels

By Amy Lor

Maroon Bells
Pikes Peak
I fell in love with Colorado when I first visited in 2016, and have been waiting for the perfect reason to go back. In July, I arranged a short trip to Colorado Springs over my birthday weekend because where better to be then my favorite place in the world.

If you have not yet visited Colorado, I would highly recommend you do. Flights are fairly reasonable from the Twin Cities, and what you receive in return is worth every penny. Colorado is a state filled with so many breathtaking mountains, forests and canyons, you will find your perfect escape.

Pikes Peak

Pikes Peak is the highest summit of the southern Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, in North America. The ultra-prominent 14,115-foot fourteener is located in Pike National Forest, 12.0 miles west by south of downtown Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Garden Of The Gods

Garden of the Gods is a public park located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1971. The red rocks in the garden are a sight to see! Take a seat on one of the cliffs and watch the sun set.

Maroon Bells

The Maroon Bells are two peaks in the Elk Mountains, Maroon Peak and North Maroon Peak, separated by about a third of a mile. The water here is so clear; you can see the green from the reflection of the trees.
